Marathon Shape

Sun 17. Dec 2017, 23:15

I thing I have noticed in regards to the Marathon Shape calculation is the dramatic swing over a 24 hour period.

For example, yesterday I completed a 14 mile run and my marathon shape was 100%. Today I went to the gym and do an easy 2 mile recovery/warm-up run before doing a core and weight workout. I completed the warm up in 20:00, so I was running at an easy 10 min/mile pace. When I enter this into the software my marathon shape dropped to 45%. My overall fitness stayed the same, so did my effective VO2 Max.

What would cause this dramatic of a drop in the marathon shape? Maybe I don't really understand how it is calculating this score and it is natural for this to occur. I am going into marathon training season so I am curious about this.

Thanks for any insight into this curious behavior.

Maybe you had an activity before 70 days (days for longjogs) which is not longer included in the marathon shape calculation.

Michael,

Thanks for the insight. I did have a race back in September that was over 20 miles. Perhaps that was what dropped. I did not know it was 70 days. My understanding of the Marathon Shape method was that it calculated over 6 months. But again, I am still learning about it.

Thanks again! Much appreciated.

You can adjust all marathon shape values in your Configuration (Configuration -> General Settings -> Marathon Shape).
